I dislike most popular brands of chocolate available in the UK as they are too sweet or too - er, well, there's a texture there (when chewing/dissolving the chocolate in the mouth) that I think must be the vegetable fat that's added...? (Whatever it is, I don't like it!!)
I agree with the previous reviews that say that Montezuma's Organic Smooth Milk Chocolate is not too sweet, and I also prefer these Giant Buttons to the bar version as I love the chunky texture when biting into them (I'm guessing the bar is too thin to afford the same kind of chomp...?)
(As you have probably guessed, I'm not a chocolate or a food expert* so I apologise if I've used the wrong terminology but I've tried my best!)
(*except at stuffing my face!)
These are made in the UK (yay! Buy British in these hard economic times!!), are certified organic by the Soil Association (has the logo, anyway!) and ingredients list is: organic sugar, organic cocoa solids (min. 34%), organic whole milk powder (min. 22.5%), organic ground vanilla and organic soya lecithin
I agree they are a bit pricier than 'regular' chocolate but they are worth the money and I would rather enjoy less of these than have more of a cheaper, lower quality product - these are only humble buttons but every single one feels like a treat and not just a piece of chocolate...!
Sorry if any of that actually sounds like a sponsored review - it is genuinely just my own humble opinion!! But if anyone from Montezuma's is reading, I'm not too proud to accept free chocolate!!!
(Sorry also if you hate ...'s and multiple ?'s and !'s) :)

absolutely gorgeous, smooth, stunning milk chocolate. this is some of the best british chocolate i've had. not too sweet like thorntons or commercial like cadburys. it is far better quality than both. go on, treat yourself!!!!
Delicious chocolate buttons, smooth chocolate, good quality ingredents. They are not too sweet,like many other brands whose major ingredient seems to be sugar. These chocolate buttons are also gluten free, suitable for my wife, who also does not like overly sweet things. These were just right!

montezuma milk has a very different taste and texture to other mass market brands. It's good stuff :)
A much smaller list of ingredients than the others, which is reassuring, and so I feel like I'm eating a more honest representation of milk choc.
